When someone makes us angry, do we take the time to calm down and talk to them to try to resolve the problem, or do we give them silent treatment? I believe that one of the main causes of a broken relationship is lack of communication.

Unfortunately, marriages and child-parent relationships are not immune to the negative effects of poor communication. As parents learn to communicate with each other, they must also learn to communicate with their children. I also believe that as parents it is very important for us to teach and model appropriate communication skills to our children. Children absorb almost everything we give them, just like a sponge absorbs water.

Webster defines communication as: “A process by which information is exchanged between individuals through a common behavioral system, a technique for effectively expressing ideas. “

Overall, communication is a two-way street. In order to communicate effectively, both parties are required to provide each other with precise information in a medium that facilitates the exchange of this information. Both parties also need to pay attention and listen, and be on the right “wavelength” to communicate effectively.
